The 5 hottest US tunes you NEED to hear this week [GRM Freshest Out]

20 June 2015

Welcome back to GRM Freshest Out, the one-stop place for the hottest US tunes of the week. Griff has rounded up the 5 best songs from across the pond, and as always it’s a diverse playlist you don’t want to miss out on. Check in and check out #GRMFreshestOut.

Joey Bada$$ – Paper Trail$

Joey Bada$$ has always embodies the aesthetic of the golden age of hip-hop and his latest visual is no different. He’s dropped off the latest video from his debut album ‘B4.DA.$$’, for the DJ Premier-produced “Paper Trail$”. Money might be the root of all evil, but it sure inspires some good music.

Raury – Devil’s Whisper

Raury is an interesting artist, who teeters along the edge of being a rapper and a singer. The ATLien gave the green light to premier his latest single “Devil’s Whisper” to Annie Mac, who debuted the genre-blending track. With elements of rap, world and electronic music, this is an eclectic tune you can’t miss out on.

Chris Brown & Tyga ft. ScHoolboy Q – Bitches N Marijuana

Lifted from their collaborative album ‘Fan Of A Fan’, Chris Brown and Tyga look to replicate the monumental success of their international hit “Ayo” with this new tune. “Bitches N Marijuana” sounds like the kind of party you can take from the title alone and features a verse from TDE rep and fellow Californian ScHoolboy Q.

DonMonique ft. Slayter & Danny Brown – Tha Low

DonMonique is a young upstart from Brooklyn, New York, who we’re tipping to blow up any time soon. She’s made a couple of heated bangers with A$AP-affiliated producer Stelios Phili already and this new one is no different. Inspired by the Wu-Tang, it has DonMonique trading bars with fellow newcomer Slayter, as well as everyone’s favourite rap weirdo Danny Brown.

Vince Staples ft. Desi Mo – Get Paid

If you’re a regular to #GRMFreshestOut then you’ll already know our thoughts on young gunner Vince Staples. After blowing up the web with his Future-assisted single “Senorita”, he’s let go of yet another banger, which features some bass-driven production and hard-as-nails verses.
